This chapter investigates Mississippian beginnings in three regions; the Lower Illinois River Valley, the Central Illinois River Valley, and the Apple River Valley. During the eleventh and twelfth centuries each region witnessed a cultural transformation represented archaeologically in the appearance of Cahokian-style material culture. The nature of this transformation was highly variable as the inhabitants of some regions came to embrace a more complete assortment of Cahokian traditions than others.

Keywords:   Mississippian, beginnings, Lower Illinois River Valley, Central Illinois River Valley, Apple River Valley, cultural transformation, Cahokian-style, material culture, Cahokian traditions
